Electroless nickel plating

Karas has supplied electroless nickel plating to the manufacturing industry for over 40 years and have now developed one of the best facilities in the UK. We have invested in the latest process monitoring and control technology.

We have responded to the market demand for high quality electroless nickel plating based on a much faster turn round time than currently available. Our advanced process control measures allow us to maintain excellent consistency of all our electroless nickel plated finishes. The plant is specifically designed to “get it right first time” with vastly reduced lead times.

Our large capacity allows us to speed up turn round and lower our plating costs. We operate a very accurate pricing model to ensure that our quotes are consistently competitive.

Electroless nickel has most of the properties of electrolytic nickel although it is slightly harder and even less porous. More importantly however, instead of using electrolysis as a means of plating it relies on a purely chemical reaction and therefore plates evenly all over (inside and out). It is particularly useful for example, where there is a requirement to adequately cover all internal surfaces. Medium phosphorous nickel is most often specified but we also offer high phosphorous where a higher corrosion resistance is required.


  • 5 plating stations for rack or barrel applications
  • Maximum component length of 1.1 metres
  • High and medium phosphorous nickel available
